Who won the 2013 Greenbrier Classic? Someone

Consider this yet another story showing why the Internet is better than a newspaper.

A multi-hour rain delay on Sunday left the final group at the Greenbrier Classic to tee off in West Virginia at 5:10 p.m. ET.

Despite playing in a speedy-by-PGA-Tour-standards 3 hours, 38 minutes, the final group of Johnson Wagner and Jimmy Walker didn't cap off the tournament, won by Swede Jonas Blixt, in time for the publication of the Times Herald in Port Huron, Mich.

A reader of the paper (pro golfer Felicity Johnson) noticed in the Sports section roundup that, at print time, the paper wasn't quite sure who had won.


At least the paper won't have to print a correction. Someone did win on Sunday.
